It's probably not what you're going to want. My daughter had one and it's fun to shoot but in trying to make it a bow for everyone it's really a bow for no one. She bought a different bow within a couple of months. They're most popular at kid's camps.
Thank you. Check around with a different archery dealers and go with the one who seems to be working for your best interest. It will help them a lot if you tell them what you want to spend and what you want to do. Be sure that they set the bow up for you and get you started shooting with some lessons (free) on their range. Don't be bashful! Most likely they love the sport and will want you to love it too.Thanks to both of you for the advice. I have a lot to learn on this one, and I want to be able to tell the store personnel what I want instead of them selling me what they want me to have.
Also, mosquitomountainman, thanks to you and your family for the articles you've written in various magazines - you show those of us still in the transitioning phase how to live the life we want to live - thanks!
Good point on draw weights, etc. Most game departments have minimum requirements for a hunting bow. 60 pounds draw weight sounds kind of high though. The most important thing is to have a well tuned, bow/arrow setup so that the arrow is going straight when it hits and to be accurate. A good hit with a minimum draw weight is a lot better than a poor hit with a "super bow." Next on the list is a good sharp broadhead. If you've got these three going for you everything else is of secondary importance. Don't forget that bows are great for small game too.I just found my childhood bow, 45#s, I understand you need a minimum of 60#s for hunting in Ohio. I want to get arrows and relearn how to shoot also. Another important hunting, survival tool may be a sling shot. Does anyone have one of these in their supplies. Sometimes silence is a good thing.
